  • audi s3 vs vxr

    had a little game of cat and mouse with one tonight, seemed damn quick the vxr kept up both seemed very even, any comments apart from the astra looking oh so much better of course

    A normal OPC/VXR without any Stage isn't able to be as fast as the S3. But with your tuning the both cars should be perfect enemy.

      Depends on which S3 we are chatting about. The new one is quicker and will outhandle the VXR no problem. The older S3 may handle better but lack the punch of the VXR...

        I would have thought that the older ones wouldnt really stand a cahce??

        Only 210 or 225 bhp arent they?

            I actually test drove 2 of the later 225bhp models before I bought the VXR and they felt very tame tbh...

              the mki S3 was 225 from a 1.8 20v turbo with a 6speed Quarto box.

                  Already raced the old S3, he had no chance.

                    I thought the astra was 6.2 to 60?

                    As quoted in parkers...

                    Engine Size 1998 cc
                    Cylinders 4
                    0-60 mph 6.2 s
                    Power Output 236 bhp
                    Valves 16
                    Torque 320 Nm 236 lb-ft
                    Top Speed 152 mph

                    Against the S3 (225)


                    Engine Size 1781 cc
                    Cylinders 4

                      0-60 time for the astra is 6.2 with 19s and 6.5 with 18s. you can get to 60 in 2nd with 19s hence the quicker time

                        Thought it was 6.3 on the 18's :?

                          I think you ewill find some that disagree (not me by the way) - some think the 18's are quicker due to less area of tyre to cover... (lets not start this again!)

                            The 6.7 referred to earlier is wrong - it is 6.2, pretty well known fact, maybe the old turbo is 6.7 but not the vxr

                              with the 18s you need to change into 3rd, so it depends how quick you can change up.

                              if you hit the red line in 2nd with 19s you will be doin 60. this is a standard car though. i think stage 2 is around 5.5-5.7 and stage 3 probs about 5
